The School Post Office operates like a small-town post office. Each student and faculty member has a post office box for letters and small packages. Students may send and receive packages, and letters.
You will be assigned a box with a combination and will be given written instructions on how to open your box. Please try to memorize the number and not impose on the P.O. staff for help. Generally, your mail will be in your box by about 10 a.m. Packages arrive a little later.
Mail is picked up from the mailbox outside the Post Office daily at 12:30 and 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. On Saturday, the mail is picked up once at 1 p.m. There is no Sunday or holiday pick up. Please respect the P.O. employees’ need to get work done by retrieving packages and other services during window hours only. Trash and recycling bins are available to get rid of unwanted mail instead of carrying it all the way home. There is also an on-campus mail slot in one of the inner doors.
Many announcements are posted on the Post Office bulletin board. Exhibition openings at Hargate, local and SPS entertainment, SPS employment opportunities, and lost and found notices are typical.
